This block provides historic, current and forecast data for the ocean and marine sectors through the Meteomatics Weather API. These datasets are available worldwide starting with 1979.

The geographic coverage is global.
|Spatial resolution||To avoid reaching the query limit provided by the Meteomatics Weather API, the spatial resolution (in decimal degrees) for retrieving the time series of a weather parameter will be set based on the AOI size. The minimum resolution is 90 m (0.001 decimal degrees):|
0.001 decimal degrees (AOI < 100 km2)
0.01 decimal degrees (AOI 100 - 10000 km2)
0.1 decimal degrees (AOI 10000 - 100000 km2)
1 decimal degree (AOI > 100000 km2)
|Dataset type||Optical and radar|
|Satellite sensors||The dataset is a satellite composite that merges images acquired by the following geostationary sensors:|
For more information, please refer to Global Satellite Images.
|Data availability||Historical data: starting with 1979|

It is not possible to run a test query in the job configuration window. The length of the forecasting period and the spatial resolution depend on the model from which the requested parameters originate.
